Like a father making an attempt to get two kids to cease preventing, the person determined he would strive his stage finest to interrupt up this buffalo brawl. Usually, with two immensely highly effective animals preventing one another, you’d need to preserve a protected distance away.
In line with the person’s considering course of, tying them up collectively and making them eat from the identical patch of grass would ‘power’ them to be pals. However that was removed from the truth. They stored preventing.
The subsequent morning, he thought he’d give this ‘friendship’ one other go, doing the identical factor he did beforehand – tying them up on the similar patch of grass collectively. However once more, they only began preventing. So the person determined to intervene this time.
He felt it might be advantageous, contemplating Khluay’s normally-calm nature, going so far as calling it a “kind-hearted buffalo”, which he raised because it was six months previous. However he quickly realized the onerous approach that you just should not attempt to cease buffalos from preventing, regardless of how a lot you care about them.
